Colored Valentine Fabric Postcards


In September, I finished the last two panels I colored back in February into fabric postcards. The snail mail and mailbox themes were inspired by InCoWriMo (International Correspondence Writing Month.)

The snail was inspired by the book Embroidery for All Seasons by Diana Lampe.



For the backs, I printed these templates onto cardstock.

In February, I do plan to participate with InCoWriMo again. (It is a challenge to write one letter, card, note or postcard every day in the month of February.) My mind is already working on ideas of what I want to mail to make the month more fun. I had thought about making 28 Artist Trading Cards, but fear I do not have the time. I am toying with a few other ideas. We'll see...

Have you made any fabric postcards recently? I would love to hear about them!

Thank you for stopping by!
Renee

Haven't been making postcards lately, but did finish a mug rug yesterday that will be a birthday gift for a friend. Really should get back to doing some more postcards though.

I saw apost box this morning, It was jam-packed with adverts and flyers the owner does not seem to want to read. If he/she were lucky enough to get a pretty card like yours.... We send far too few snail mail greetings.

How delightful these lovely cards are. They will be treasured.

I adore your “Snail Mail” fabric postcards. I have never tried coloring my fabrics but the end result looks great. <3

Beautiful! I like my version best, though. =) Oh, I better forget about stamping Christmas cards and go straight to February!
